       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The smbcquotas program manipulates NT Quotas on SMB file shares.


       The following options are available to the smbcquotas program.

       -u user
              Specifies the user of whom the quotas are get or set. By default
              the current user’s username will be used.

       -L     Lists all quota records of the share.

       -F     Show the share quota status and default limits.

              This command sets/modifies quotas for a user or  on  the  share,
              depending  on the QUOTA_SET_COMMAND parameter which is described

       -n     This option displays all QUOTA information  in  numeric  format.
              The  default  is  to convert SIDs to names and QUOTA limits to a
              readable string format.

       -t     Don’t actually do anything, only validate the correctness of the

       -v     Be verbose.

              Print a summary of command line options.

       -V     Prints the program version number.

       -s <configuration file>
              The  file  specified contains the configuration details required
              by the server. The information in this file includes server-spe-
              cific  information such as what printcap file to use, as well as
              descriptions of all the services that the server is to  provide.
              See  smb.conf  for  more  information. The default configuration
              file name is determined at compile time.

              debuglevel is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
              parameter is not specified is zero.

              The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log
              files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only crit-
              ical  errors  and  serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a
              reasonable level for day-to-day running - it generates  a  small
              amount of information about operations carried out.

              Levels  above  1 will generate considerable amounts of log data,
              and should only be used when  investigating  a  problem.  Levels
              above  3  are  designed  for use only by developers and generate
              HUGE amounts of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

              Note that specifying this parameter here will override the   pa-
              rameter in the smb.conf file.

              Base  directory  name for log/debug files. The extension ".prog-
              name" will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient,  log.smbd,  etc...).
              The log file is never removed by the client.

       -N     If  specified,  this  parameter  suppresses  the normal password
              prompt from the client to the user. This is useful when  access-
              ing a service that does not require a password.

              Unless  a  password is specified on the command line or this pa-
              rameter is specified, the client will request a password.

       -k     Try to authenticate with kerberos. Only useful in an Active  Di-
              rectory environment.

              This  option allows you to specify a file from which to read the
              username and password used in the connection. The format of  the
              file is

              username = <value>
              password = <value>
              domain   = <value>

              Make  certain  that  the permissions on the file restrict access
              from unwanted users.

              Sets the SMB username or username and password.

              If %password is not specified, the user will  be  prompted.  The
              client  will first check the USER environment variable, then the
              LOGNAME variable and if either exists, the string is uppercased.
              If  these  environmental  variables  are not found, the username
              GUEST is used.

              A third option is to use a credentials file which  contains  the
              plaintext  of  the  username and password. This option is mainly
              provided for scripts where the admin does not wish to  pass  the
              credentials on the command line or via environment variables. If
              this method is used, make certain that the  permissions  on  the
              file  restrict  access  from unwanted users. See the -A for more

              Be cautious about including passwords in scripts. Also, on  many
              systems  the  command  line of a running process may be seen via
              the ps command. To be safe always allow rpcclient to prompt  for
              a password and type it in directly.


       The  format  of  an  ACL is one or more ACL entries separated by either
       commas or newlines. An ACL entry is one of the following:

       for setting user quotas for the user specified by  -u  or  the  current


       for setting the default quotas for a share:


       for changing the share quota settings:



       The smbcquotas program sets the exit status depending on the success or
       otherwise of the operations performed. The exit status may  be  one  of
       the following values.

       If  the operation succeeded, smbcquotas returns an exit status of 0. If
       smbcquotas couldn’t connect to the specified server, or when there  was
       an  error  getting  or setting the quota(s), an exit status of 1 is re-
       turned. If there was an error parsing any command  line  arguments,  an
       exit status of 2 is returned.


       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.


       The  original  Samba software and related utilities were created by An-
       drew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the  Samba  Team  as  an  Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       smbcquotas was written by Stefan Metzmacher.
